As President Ronald Reagan once said, "It is a time for choosing." In less than three months Election Day will be upon us. It is a privilege and our duty to vote. If we don't vote, we deserve the government we get. You should love your country enough to do some investigational homework before giving any person seeking a legislative position your approval. They are there to represent us, and too often they do not.
We are living in complex days. The whole world faces turmoil. We are besieged with problems from all directions. The media has caused irreparable harm to America. It has impacted the general public's cognitive reasoning to be aware and discerning.
"The need is for a great foreign policy president of the quality of Truman, or Reagan. To win a long war begun by our enemies, we are going to need more than an attractive but essentially empty vessel." - Iain Martin
Many are asking: "how did we get here?" We allowed the far Left wing of the Democrat Party to purposefully degrade our president for more than seven years for their own expediency and political gain. President Bush has kept our economy in stellar shape during his two terms in office.
Our nation is going through hard times. However, we're not in a depression. We will be if the Democrats succeed in further damaging our nation's economy by insisting on higher taxes and not allowing off-shore drilling.
High gas prices have pointed to a bunch of no-drill Democrats who refuse to hear the people's will. Their psychobabble about our energy crisis puts our home land security in danger. We need oil as we develop other energy alternatives. Oil byproducts are found in nearly everything we use. There will always be a great need for fossil fuels.
Americans must choose leadership that comes with maturity and years of experience. This is not the time for a president to receive on the job training. Think before you vote. There are too many important issues that need immediate attention and can not be solved by words alone.
In an op-ed entitled "McCain Gets My Vote
" persuasive reasons were given to elect Sen. John McCain. He has presidential credentials. Our troops and veterans have the greatest respect for him. World leaders know him and understand that he is a man of solid principals. .
If you're an Obama supporter, now it the time to get off of your comfortable complacency. Familiarize yourself with Obama just like you know the back of your own hand. Don't take other people's words as fact. There is much information to absorb before you cast your vote. Obama may impress you, but his shady past and lack of experience must take priority in your final analysis.
Become a Sherlock Holmes while seeking information about your candidate. Checkout other places including the DNC website or BarackObama.com. Rev. Wright suggested that we read Dr. Cone's "Black Theology and Black Power." While you're at it, pick up a book on CD: "Obama Nation." written by Dr. Jerome Corsi. You'll get a well rounded picture of the man that you believe is admirable.
Clearly understand Obama.Your own life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness depend upon your wisdom when choosing the leader of the most important and powerful country in the world. It pays to listen to the opposition in order to gauge your own stance. Tune into conservative radio.
Everyone knows Sen. John McCain. He does not have relationships with noxious people who are known for their anti-American and anti-Semitic bigoted remarks. There are list of supporters including The American Communist Party, The New Black Panther Organization, and terrorist groups pulling for Obama to win the presidency. McCain has no relatives living in Kenya that are Marxist and consequently, he has never injected himself into Kenya's politics. However that can not be said about the presumptive Democrat nominee, Barack Obama.
While Obama was at a high school gym in Indiana, a seven year
old girl asked him why he wanted to become President. Obama's answer was inappropriate, and defied any good explanation. He did not give an uplifting answer. He said: "America is no longer, what it could be, what it once was, - and I say to myself, I don't want that future for my children." He sounded like Rev. Jeremiah Wright all over again. Thank God everyone can become successful in America.
Excerpts from WorldNet Daily: Thinner and thinner
"Thinner," the 1984 novel by horror novelist Stephen King, published under his pseudonym Richard Bachman, is about a fat guy who wrongs a gypsy and winds up cursed to grow progressively thinner. At first the change is gratifying, but as he transforms into a haggard bone rack, he begins to realize that he's going to die if he doesn't do something. Thus, his quest to have the curse lifted ensues.
"Political pollsters would like us to believe they've got a bead on voter preference for Sen. Barack Obama and John McCain with regard to who is likely to win the presidency in November's general election; this sort of thing is, of course, their stock in trade.
"The fact remains that the 4 to 10-point leads polls have been reporting for the last month or so don't mean anything with respect to the election, and are far enough within the margins for error to give pause at this stage of the game. Acknowledging this, even the overwhelmingly pro-Obama.
"It also appears - and I tend to believe this based on reader mail - that some savvy individuals who had leaned toward Obama actually decided to do some cursory research on the candidate. Some apparently did not like what they found. While a great many who rely on the establishment press and the Obama campaign are obviously clueless, there is a wealth of information from other reliable sources which gives insight into the pre-candidacy Barack Obama.
"That he is not what he seems has indeed become apparent to some likely voters. To these, he is becoming more transparent." Full Article
Political pundits with integrity will dig deep while investigating information for an op-ed.They have come away with serious and significant flaws in the man who has been neither forthright nor honest. He first presented himself as a man who transcended old politics. He gave an amazing
speech in 2004 that awed all America.
It is to America's advantage, in this case, that the election campaign is extremely long. As the months went by, Obama lost his cool and hip persona. He turned out to be a stealth character from the dens of old Chicago politics. After hearing from his spiritual mentor, "God Damn America," Rev. Wright, we all knew there was a problem with the anointed one named Obama.
Yes, we can use humor to imply that America received a warning message from on high. People are troubled about Obama, but it has nothing to do with his skin color. The exploitation of the minority issue by the Democrats is deplorable. Too often, it has been Obama's strategy to use race as leverage. Doing so will prove to become his undoing. It is an insult to imply that America is a racist country.
"What they're going to try to do is make you scared of me. You know, he's not patriotic enough. He's got a funny name. You know, he doesn't look like all those other presidents on those dollar bills, you know. He's risky. And did I mention he's black?" - Barack Obama
Obama worked as an organizer in his younger years. With the radical rules laid out by activist Saul Alinsky, Chicago became the hub-bub of the religious Left
and faith-based organizing. It was there where Obama showed his lack of good judgment. He associated himself with people that ordinary folks would not befriend.
In 1995, Alice Palmer, who was about to retire from her position of Sate Senator of Illinois, hand picked a left winger by the name of Barack Obama as her successor. To introduce Obama to influential liberals, Palmer held a social function at the home of Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn, thus the beginning of Obama's political career which linked him to the infamous Ayers of the Weatherman terrorist organization. As Barack paved his way through Chicago's extreme left wing politics, he kept a friendship with Ayers and his wife. Obama acknowledges that they are still friends to this day.
Both Bill Ayers and his wife say that they never regretted any thing they did during the 60's and 70's. People died because of their actions. Bernadine said that she approved of the heinous Charles Manson murders.
The Weatherman was a Communist faction of Students for a Democratic Society. They proudly characterized themselves as an American Red Army. The ideology of the organization included the killing of all rich people and the encouragement of others to murder their own parents if it served their radical terrorist cause. It was their goal to bring about a revolution.
Authorities mishandled the Ayers case. As a result, Aryes and his wife never served prison time. The unrepented couple lives amongst our society. There are other people that came into Obama's life that you'll indeed find troubling. The onion is being peeled back and what emerges is a man who should have never run for the presidency.
The Democratic National Committee must believe that all of their constituents are lummoxes. The DNC presented an unvetted man before the American public, and with the help of the biased liberal media, Americans will be put upon to elect Obama to dispel the untruthful notion that race problems still exist in our country.
Middle America no longer cares to hear Obama's empty rhetoric. They have grown immune to an over exposed candidate who is full of self aggrandizing pride. His countenance has incredibly changed from a wide eyed hopeful, to an unappealing smugness.
His speech in Germany left most Americans feeling flat. If anything, it was viewed as unmitigated arrogance, because Obama is not the president.
is more than ready to elect its first black president. Obama's political views will not win him the position he is seeking. Americans love their country too much to hand it over to the far left's "fifth column Democrats."
Senator Obama's beliefs and political views are in line with those of the American Communist Party. Americans will reject the man who holds Socialist Marxist viewpoints from sitting in the White House. Our nation is more than ready to elect its first black president. Obama's political views will not win him the position he is seeking. Americans love their country too much to hand it over to the far left's "fifth column Democrats."
